Grand Rapids Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Grand Rapids, the second-largest city in Michigan, is a mix of culture and business. Nicknamed Furniture City, it’s famous for its office furniture manufacturing companies, including Herman Miller, Steelcase and Knoll. In 2017, Grand Rapids made U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Places to Live,” ranking 19 out of 100. The city’s public art offerings, craft brewery scene, healthy job market and affordable housing have attracted young families to take root here for decades, according to the report.

Despite its idyllic environment, Grand Rapids in Kent County has experienced a serious drug problem along with many other cities across the nation. The community has long been aware of the issue. One local group, The Grand Rapids Red Project, which opened in 1998, is encouraging needle exchange, HIV testing, overdose prevention and drug overdose kits including Naloxone, the drug that reverses opioid overdosing and has prevented dozens of deaths. Grand Rapids drug rehab will help those struggling to stop these drug addictions. By mid 2017, the program had used Naloxone to save 41 lives from opioid overdose. Grand Rapids alcohol rehab centers are also available to help those struggling with alcohol misuse.
